Trump: I Thought Presidency Would Be ‘Easier’ Than ‘Previous Life’


President Donald Trump said Thursday he expected the presidency to be “easier” than his “previous life” as a real estate mogul.

“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” the president told Reuters in a wide-ranging Oval Office interview. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”

Trump, who spent years in the public limelight as a billionaire real estate magnate and reality television star, also lamented the lack of privacy in his new life as the country’s most prominent public servant.

“You’re really into your own little cocoon, because you have such massive protection that you really can’t go anywhere,” he said.



  1. ft: ALl presidents have the same reaction once they are elected. President Trump is one of the few to actually admit to it. He is doing an exceptional job so far. I am proud to be an American after eight disastrous years of his predecessor.
